HOURS OF CLOSURE: MT. TABOR PARKING LOT
Administrative Rule Adopted by Portland Parks & Recreation Pursuant to Rule-Making Authority
Policy Category: Security
In 2005, due to serious and multiple public safety issues, the bureau informally began closing the Mt. Tabor parking lot at 10:00 p.m. This policy formalizes this practice and is consistent with PCC.20.12.210 and PCC 20.12.200.
PCC 20.12.210 authorizes the Director to designate hours of park closure and PCC 20.12.200 further authorizes the Director to make certain areas closed to the public.
The Director hereby designates the hours of closure of Mt. Tabor parking lot as 10:00 p.m., effective immediately. The park itself will remain open until 12:01 a.m. No person, without the consent of the Director or other authorized Park Officer, shall enter, stay or leave their vehicle in the parking lot after 10:00 p.m. Violation of this policy can lead to towing of vehicles left in the parking lot and a warning/exclusion/or trespass citation to the owner of the vehicle.
See PCC 16.70.560
The Ranger and Parks Parking Enforcement program has authority to issue tow warnings to vehicles parked in a City park after parking lot closure hours. PCC 16.70.560 also provides these staff with the authority to tow vehicles from parks after gate closure. Rangers and Parking Enforcement Officers finding chronic violators may initiate tow proceedings pursuant to Standard Operating Procedures.
